There's a group of incredibly talented artists with an unmatched level of diversity and passion making up Tamron's Image Masters and it's Tamron Tuesday. I always profile one of Tamron's tech staff or an Image Master. This week in the spotlight is landscape, portrait and sports photographer, Kevin Gilligan.
Kevin wrote on his Image Masters' page:
My visual perspective grew out of a love of the ocean, surfing and swimming. I have always lived near the ocean and have always been drawn to the water and its forms, sounds and interactions with light. Growing up on New York’s Long Island Sound and now living in L.A.’s South Bay, I have a keen appreciation for beautiful ocean, beach and water landscapes. My interests are eclectic and take me in many different photographic directions. Art, portraits, sports photography, especially martial arts and boxing are also near and dear to my heart. I have studied martial arts for 28 years and hold black belts in Tae Kwon Do and Krav Maga. I’d like to think the discipline, work ethic, and curiosity from martial arts has carried over to my photography. I am curious about many things and strive to keep learning everyday. Travel photography is also a passion.
For me, one of the fun parts of these spotlight posts is the challenge of picking out some representative images to share. It's not easy with Kevin - I'm not sure there isn't anything he can't shoot. I love the fact that he threw in the casual comment about travel photography being a passion. He's got some stunning work and I had a blast wandering through his galleries. Visit his website yourself and you'll see what I mean.
To make sure Kevin is on your radar check out his website and follow him on Twitter and Facebook.
